Peripheral Vestibular Disorders (PVD)
Sensory interaction posturography in patients with peripheral vestibular disorders. When the surgery is performed with a transcanal approach, there is a greater risk of not removing all the tissue necessary, resulting in persistent vertigo. Other possible bad outcomes include: facial nerve damage, infection that could involve the brain, a permanent increase in tinnitus, taste disturbance and dry mouth in the immediate postoperative period, incomplete vestibular compensation, and spinal fluid leakage. In addition, destruction of balance function in one ear may cause increased imbalance if disease eventually occurs in the opposite ear.
